I'm so sorry for your loss Carl. God Bless to you and your family.
To all of the Bates family, I'm so sorry for your loss. I remember his quiet manner, intelligent observations and lively eyes...and his enthusiastic support of his family's activities (Recitals, cantata trips, shared family parties on New Years Eve, so many nice memories). May you find strength in your memories and laughter among the tears.
Carl will be truly missed by all his friends at the Rockwell/Boeing Retiree Club, and especially his telephone/contact services. Our deepest sympathy to the Bates family and especially Barbara. Know that we loved Carl and working with him was a privilege. May his soul rest in peace.
I extend my deepest synpathies to all of Carl's loved ones. May God comfort, bless and guide you during this difficult time.
I had neither see or talked to Carl in over 30 years but my memories of him are the best.We sat desk to desk at North American Rockwell in Columbus for many of his 22 years there. Our engineering group enjoyed joking with each other and I always had fun kidding Carl about being a true "Buckeye". I would say; "Carl,you are a native born Buckeye! Against your will your parents foced you to go
over and live in PA with them but as soon as you were on your own you a beeline right back to Ohio".
Carl was a great engineer and a great guy and I'm sure all of the fellows in our group at Columbus wiil never forget him.
See ya later, Rodney!
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
